During the fourth quarter, Ms. Sampson’s science seminar students were tasked with conducting action research studies focusing on ecology. Students, in groups of two to five, designed, conducted, and presented research on a variety of topics ranging from the affects of predators on livestock and wildlife to the benefits of a healthy community garden.
By giving students their choice of topics, Ms. Sampson allowed the students to find a topic that sparked their curiosity and instilled a desire not just to conduct the research but also to share the results.
In the links below, you can see a few of the projects as they were being developed and upon completion. We’re so excited to see what next year’s seniors have planned!
